Dylan Davidson Sold

Wed, 16/01/2019 - 21:25

Dylan Davidson has left the club and joined Coleraine after the Bannsiders this evening agreed to meet our valuation of the player.

Manager Gary Smyth said : "I'm sorry to see Dylan and big James leave, but they both thought it better to move on and get more regular football. We would have been happy for both players to stay and fight for a place in the starting 11, but they thought pastures new would be better for them".

All money raised through transfer fees or wages saved by departures this window will be added to Gary's budget to strengthen the squad.

James Ferrin leaves Glentoran

Wed, 16/01/2019 - 00:14

The club this evening agreed terms for the transfer of James Ferrin to Dungannon Swifts.

James last week requested a transfer in order to secure more regular first team starts. James was a Glentoran Youth Team product over a decade ago who rejoined the club in July 2016 after some time away from football. During his second spell at the club he made 54 first team appearances, scoring 3 goals.

Institute 0-2 Glentoran

Sat, 12/01/2019 - 19:09

It was certainly one of those 'I was there' matches; a very special day. Special too for different reasons to different people and whilst for most it will be remembered for Elliott Morris scoring a spectacular goal from midway inside his own half, Paul O'Neill will remember his first senior goal for Glentoran and Gary Smyth his first win as manager.

Match Preview - Institute v Glentoran

Thu, 10/01/2019 - 23:51

Saturday 12th January 2019, Kick off 3.00pm.

A month ago we made our first league visit to the Brandywell for nearly 47 years. Five weeks later and we’re back. The term “six pointer” is severely overused but in this case it’s totally appropriate with Institute eight points and one place ahead of us (though we have a game in hand).  A win on Saturday is essential if we’re to both stop our current long winless run and to start looking to climb back up the table.

James Ferrin Transfer Listed

James joined the club in the summer of 2016. He has made 55 appearances so far, scoring 3 goals.

Glentoran Under20 Player of the Month for December

Sun, 06/01/2019 - 23:26

Congratulations to Jack Henderson who has been named as our u20 Player of the Month for December.

Jack started the month with an impressive display against Crusaders at Seaview where he crowned the performance with a goal in a 6-3 win before back to back man of the match displays against Institute and Warrenpoint.

Jack then added a second goal in December with a cracking 20 yard strike in the 2-2 draw with Newry.
